have this, another member of the obama administration stepping down to report. transportation secretary ray lahood announcing this morning that he would not be staying for the second term. now, the president said lahood made travel safer throughout the country. in an e-mail to d.o.t. employees, lahood wrote, "i've told president obama and i've told many of you that this is the best job i've ever had. i'm grateful to have the opportunity to work with all of you." >> for nearly two years, the assad regime has waged a brutal war against the syrian people, murdering innocent men, women, and children in their homes and bread lines and at universities. i've approved an additional $155 million in humanitarian aid for people in syria and refugees fleeing the violence. >> president obama announcing more humanitarian aid to the war-torn country of syria. more than 60,000 people have been killed and more than 700,000 have escaped to nearby countries since march of 2011. >>> and now here's a look at some of the other stories topping the news now for you. in egypt, the public prosecutor is urging se
with this, the reckoning. put up or shut up, d day. president obama through down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fiks the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of worgers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past. will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? that could be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm holder than you, i have been through simpson mazoly. we were -- >> i love it's getting a come back. >> we've passed bills that said it's got teeth and it's got amnesty for people who have been here to while. is this going to work
president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includ
community. the flip side of that coin from the republican perspective if president obama puts his name on the bill then republicans will be wealeery of it. >> see what happens. time now to take a look at who is talking. the two secretaries of state sitting down with fox news. former sec ry of state colon powell talking with bill o'reilly. >> you will hear from him a little later in the show but first the wup on one interview hillary clinton. >> there are questions about why american citizens were in such a dangerous place in the first place. secretary clinton responding to just that. >> let me explain why we are there. this is the part of the libyan revolution. we knew they were dangerous people in and around benghazi. we also knew there were a lot of lose weapons. part of what we were doing there was trying to get leads on recovering those weapons. and we knew there was smuggling radios that would go into sinai threaten israel. there are other reasons why we were there not just the state department but other government agencies. when and where we go back will depend on the security si
as the two sat down for a side-by-side interview with cbs' "60 minutes." obama had nothing but high praise for clinton. >> why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> well, the main thing is i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her. wish she was sticking around. but she has logged in so many miles i can't begrudge her to take it easy far little bit. >> hillary clinton wraps up her tour of duty as secretary of state next week. she's been praised and admired around the world for most of her tenure. she's leaving under some controversial circumstances after questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. aaron david miller has advised several secretaries of state and is a distinguished scholar at the woodrow wilson center and joins me from washington. the killing of ambassador stephens and the attack on the consulate be the lasting memory of hillary clinton's tenure? >>
. disappointed in president obama that he's punting the ball down the field for a long time. i don't understand why they can't figure this thing out. seems to be consistent with what congress seem to be able to do. >> what happens if you don't go with sequestration is you have to make the tough decisions and that compromises a hard thing to do in a month. and initially the republicans were crying oh, my god defense. we can't get defense. >> it's surprising now. >> exactly. now, a lot of folks are saying look maybe it's going to be easier to do this, let it go, move on to the other big issues and try to put together more of a plan as you move down. but you got to bring some of the spending down. but you also have to deal as phillip was talking about, deal with the taxes. you've got to have tax reform in this country. that's probably the next step. >> it's easier to push the ball down the field. that's what we always do which is a shame. >> does it have to do with they don't think this is going to have a financial impact or financial markets? >> that's right. housing is moving. the stock market i

was taken down in 2006 and 28th not by a republican but barack obama. >> there is no barack obama at the moment. let's not make too many assumptions. in 1992, nobody wanted to run against george bush in the primary because they thought he was unbeatable. i think somebody will take her hon on if she runs. i think the white house and biden has a confluence of interest and the white house doesn't want to see biden lose his stature and biden doesn't want to lose his stature. biden wants to run and make himself presidential. >> i can't really look forward to 2016 because i can't even look past tomorrow. tomorrow's show, seriously, it is -- i always joke, it's like night of the thousand stars. look at this. willie, look, the mt. rushmore of whatever it is the mt. rushmore of. al gore and bill gates will be on tomorrow. we're looking forward to that. also, coming up today, we're talking to senators john mccain and chuck schumer about their proposals on immigration reform and whether they really think this time is different than last time and former senate majority leader, all around grea
. but hillary never backed down. >> shame you, barack obama. >> even when campaigning got ugly. not long after that, clinton welled up at the new hampshire diner and ran away with the primary. another victory. in the end, she conceded, wrapping up her historic presidential bid. >> although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time -- >> her persistence and passion convinced the man she tried to beat to cast her on the world stage. >> in her, you will have a secretary of state who has my full confidence. >> the former first lady and senator from new york would become madam secretary in 2009. yet now, a millionaire miles and 112 countries later, she finds herself entangled in one final controversy. >> i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. >> testifying it who knew what when in light of the attack on the compound in benghazi. but if history is any guide, hillary clinton may emerge unscathed once again and reinvent herself. now it's not clear exactly when clinton will relinquish her post at the state department. it r
. >> we just learned a federal appeals court has struck down president obama recess appointme appointments. deb labor secretary sharon block, union lawyer richard griffin and attorney terrence flynn. today a three-judge federal panel said those appointments are invalid because the senate was only in recess and technically in session. the ruling could invalidate hundreds of decisions the labor board maybe over the last year. i want to bring in paul to talk about what does this mean? first of all, for the three that were appointed and then secondly for some of the decisions that they have made. >> this is a very important decision. this court called the d.c. circuit which has jurisdiction over all federal agencies is often a thorn in the side of the president. it's also a prestigious federal court. many supreme justices come from the court. it's got a lot of prestige and power. their decision really is a surprise decision here. what they did was they looked at the constitution and they said the founding fathers defined recess in a certain way and during a recess of the congress, the presiden
obama and hillary clinton gave a joint interview. it was their idea. they sat down with steve kroft. steve kroft thinks he knows why he was chosen. >>steve: steve kroft sat down with pierce morgan. he said he was absolutely flabbergasted when he discovered the white house wanted him to be the interviewer. he was asked why does obama keep sitting in the chair opposite you? he said we're fair, we do great editing and we're not going to play gotcha, we're not going to go out of our way to make him look stupid, and he knows that. >>gretchen: brit hume on special report last night put his thoughts into perspective. >> you didn't hear it on "60 minutes" but president obama is unhappy with the press. in a second weekend interview with the new republic he grumbled about fox news and rush limbaugh. president obama also complained a reporter generally treats the republicans and democrats as equivalent balancing the views of one side with the other. they fail to note one side -- his -- is trying to do what's right and -- quote -- "we haven't seen that kind of attitude on the other side." never
conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we could have had a fantastic ruling. the courts would finally acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. there's a disconnect between what obama says publicly and what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. at thesident's inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell, . he still has not been willing to support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line
. >> steve: it's cuba. at this time of year it's beautiful down there. >> gretchen: president obama just laid out his plans yesterday in las vegas to fix a broken immigration system. but the specifics could put him on a collision course now with congress. or will it? peter doocy live in washington with all the details. good morning to you. >> good morning. and there are a few big differences between what the president wants to do to reform immigration and what a bipartisan group of u.s. senators wants to do and a big one revolves around the pathway to citizenship. president obama yesterday during the first trip of his second term told a crowd in las vegas that the process for illegal aliens to become u.s. citizens should be a fast one. >> yes, they broke the rules. they crossed the border illegally. maybe they i don't have stayed their visas. those are the facts. nobody disputes them. but these 11 million men and women are now here. many of them have been here for years. >> but the senate plan, which president obama applauded but did not endorse since it hasn't been written yet, calls for sec
.s. passport. say it ain't so. >>> first let's get to that joint television interview with president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. and some revealing new details about their working relationship. listen. >> i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. >> a few years ago it would have been seen as improbable. because we have that very long, hard, primary campaign. in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. and i worked very hard, but i lost. and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state. and i said yes. and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> let me bring in political reporter for "u.s. news and world report" lauren fox and white house reporter david nakimura. david the first sit down interview the president has done with anyone other than the first lady. why do this? why do it now? >> i think t.j. the timing is secretary of state has served for four years. now she's leaving. she's
bombing. president obama said, you do not want to miss with mary jo. president obama had an unwelcome visitor while announcing the information. >> this guy is bothering me here. >> secret service, take him down. >> this guy is bothering me. get out of here. >> it is 5:55 and 19 degrees outside. >> coming up, a look at what is hitting the big screen. arch campbell has a preview of quartets. [ male announcer ] now at your neighborhood subway: the big hot pastrami melt. we've perfected the pastrami sandwich -- filled with juicy pastrami pickles, yellow muststard and melted cheese. all piled-high on freshly baked bread. taste one at your local subway today! subway. eat fresh. >> and the movie hopes to make sweet music at the box office. >> arch campbell has a look at it. >> good morning. maggie smith does it again in herma new movie "quartet." it finds a retirement home for musicians in france where maggie smith comes to retire only to discover one of her many unhappy ex-husband in residence. an annual gala must save the place. can they talk her into perfor
.c. i question is for bob schieffer. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this coun
of money to develop them. but then again, we all have this problem with keeping health care costs down and obama care wants generic competition for biologics. what's the right road to take there? >> you know, joe, we've been in this industry for over 135 years. for us, we've taken a focus and we pursue both small molecule as well as bioological routes to address some of the most oppressing diseases out there. if you take alzheimer's, we have the biologic but we have a base inhibitor in phase two -- >> would you pay a lobbyist, would you get lobbyists for eli lilly to try to make it that you don't have to have generic competition for biologics, is that something eli lilly would do, or do you go along with it? >> well, remember, in the affordable care act we did get an extension in terms of data protection, as we should be, to at least 12 years. we believe that's very important for us to have a reasonable period to generate return on investment that we make in r&d. we still are the industry that invests the most in r&d, research and development, in this country. we from a policy standpoi
will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four
that dianne feinstein and barack obama wants to take away guns. they believe that in their bones. this legislation is so full of loopholes and wants to lay down a predicate to make it easier down the road to check gun owners and sue people who didn't store their guns properly. give the right government to go in people's homes. there is no trust that that is where the democrats will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states lik west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of t
minority voter asnd with women voters. you cannot build a vole ligs when you're breaking down people like that. >> president obama was re-elected but also the house was re-elected overwhelmingly by republicans. >> democrats picked up some seats. >> we need to do a better job at reaching out to minorities articulating our message better. if you look at ted cruz in texas, he won 80% of the vote. instead of getting off on subjects of rape and stuff, we win big. >> you should let amy run for something. >> thanks to both of you for coming in. we'll be right back. glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes.

? well, all of america now knows it was an empty promise, just like when president obama promised health insurance premiums would go down. over and over again the president said that his law would lower premiums by $2,500 a family by the end of his first term in office. the president hasn't talked much about that hately. didn't hear anything about it in the inaugural address and i don't expect to hear very much about it in the state of the union. that's because average premiums across the country for families haven't gone down, not by the $2,500 that the president promised, not by even $1,000, not even by a cent. instead, average family premiums have actually gone up by more than $3,000 during the president's first term. that's pretty big math there on the part of president obama and the american people unfortunately are the ones who have to pay for his mistake. because of his policies, health insurance is a lot less affordable for a lot of people and for a the although of small businesses. -- and for a lot of small businesses. many small businesses are facing what is turning out to be a
of president obama's gun package, but you say it all comes down to people's behavior. what do you mean? >> effective gun control has many facets to it. assault weapons ban is an element, significant symbolism. but the reality is you want to control behavior. the behavior of people. and that's what we did in the '90s here in new york. that's what i did in los angeles for seven years. crime is caused by people. you focus on their behavior and one of the behavioral changes is insuring that everybody that wants to buy a firearm has to basically submit to an i.d. check. that's form of behavior control. a lot of laws, a lot of tools are necessary, but effectively what you're doing is trying to control behavior. >> gretchen: you say that supersedes legislation. i just want to show some crime stats from new york when you were in charge here in the '90s. so murders fell 70%, car theft down 61. robbery down 55%. burglary down 53%. what did you do significantly about behavior? >> we had a very assertive police force, a very large police force. did the same thing in los angeles with a small police
bureaucratic red tape coming down the pike, and i think we need to be a little bit concerned about this. now, the righties out there are saying well, obama care, it's just too much government intervention. what about this? listen to the real folks calling a talk show, talking about what they're living with. first of all, you got to fix the visa backlog. okay? how do you do that? you get people engaged to do it and you start making phone calls and calling them. in maybe you can use the dmv. i mean, this is one of the big problems right here, the backlog. what that gentleman was talking about off the radio show. and a time frame. can we make it reasonable? do we want to tell these folks hey, you got to wait another 12 or 13 years. what? some of these folks have been here more than ten years. can't we get them on the fast track? how much loyalty do they have to show? what the republicans are afraid of is that they'll vote for the democrats so, we got to slow this baby down a little bit. the other thing is paying fines and back taxes. all right. let's take, for instance, that there is someone ou
himself for the obama administration. i know he is going to be going into the administration for some type of position. he is not a bad man. he did come down here to promote the south coast rail system, which we have been waiting for for 40 years. all liberal issues he is just a little bit too lenient. we have so much waste in government. i would like to see someone conservative in the governorship to weed out all this fraud. we go to work hard every day and we shake our heads when we come home every night. host: let's take a listen to one of the republican governors in the country who has become a leading voice in gop issues. this is chris christie in his state of the state address. he starts by talking about hurricanes in the budde goes from there. >> there is plenty of evidence that new jersey has not let's stop our turnaround. and i'm unemployment is coming down -- unemployment is coming down. 2011 was our best private sector job growth in 20 years. personal income set a record high in new jersey for the seventh quarter in a row. income tax receipts -- sales of new homes are up. consum
production. and other are democrats or not really on board. alternative energy agenda that the obama administration is pursuing as well. and on health care, there are particular parts of obamacare that congress may be able to slow down or stop. the piece is mostly a report on what the administration is doing, but it gives guidance to congress. one thing republicans in congress needs to think about is what they can accomplish in by sized chunks. there will not change health care in a conservative direction in the next four years or reform entitlements. can they accomplished a few good things that also point the way towards bigger things later? i thing maybe they can. host: our guest is bill kristol. our next call is from frederick, maryland, peter is on the republican line. thanks for waiting. caller: how are things? host: fine. sounds like you're listening to us on c-span radio. caller: yes, sir. but itod to listen to, plays havoc on my blood pressure. republicans have been losing for 30 years or more. they are up against a very liberal education system as well as a very liberal medi

're willing to die for it, that's all it comes down to. >> reporter: as an immigrant brought to this country by his parents when he was 4, the 19-year-old callfies for what is known as deferred action. president obama's policy allows some young immigrants who meet age, education, criminal background requirements to stay in the country temporarily without fear of deportation, but it does not allow them to serve in the armed forces, which is something that arizona resident maria diaz, is also trying to do. >> would you be willing to join the military yourself? and if you aren't, then why would you turn down somebody who is willing to die for a nation that it's all they have known? >> reporter: diaz was brought to the united states when she was 3 years old and has never lived anyone else. as an undocumented immigrant she's ineligible for in-state tuition and is looking for an alternative. >> nearly impossible because the tuition rate was three times more than an in-state student. >> reporter: during his inauguration speech, president obama said one of his agendas for his second term is immigrat
. >> reporter: mr. obama's plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the u.s., requiring applicants undergo background checks, pay taxes and penalty and learn english. it would crack down on employers who hire undocumented workers. >> it won't be a quick process, but it will be a fair process and it will lift these individuals out of the shadows and give them a chance to earn their way to a green card and eventually to citizenship. >> rorter: the president's plan does not outline a guest worker program, nor does it tie a pathway to citizen ship to tighter border security, both part of the senate plan. >> that issue i think is a lifeline for most of us involving in this effort. >> reporter: rubio seemed to win rush limbaugh over. >> what you're doing is admirable and noteworthy. you are recognizing reality. >> reporter: some conservatives fear granting citizenship to undocumented immigrants may encourage more to come. >> it doesn't matter if it was clinton or if it was reagan. what we've learned is if you grant amnesty, what do you
